Find the Right Hairstyle for Your Face Shape

Have you ever wondered whatthe right hairstyle is for your face shape? After all, there’s nothing worst than going to a hairdresser’s and getting a cut only to find it really doesn’t suit you. We’ve all seen a cut on a celebrity that we liked and wanted to copy, but what could look good on one person might not necessarily look good on another. So grab yourself a mirror and pull your hair into a ponytail as this handy guide will help you determine the right hairstyle for your face shape.
If your face is oval, where your forehead and jaw are the same width, then good news as this shape can carry off any hair length – whether it’s a short pixie cut or a long flowing mane. When it comes time to cut, use this to your advantage and showcase your best features so a sleek bob often works best.
If your face shape is oblong, again where your forehead and jaw are the same width but your face is noticeably longer then the oval, this suitsstylesfor savvy girls who prefer giving their hair a lift; think layers with shorter pieces to frame your face. If your forehead is long opt for a fringes or if your jawline is long then opt for chin-skimmed bob with a little bit of curls.
If your face shape is round, where the forehead and lower face are equal width, then you can appear youthful so go for a softly layered cut that falls below the chin. Whatever style you choose,remember to add volume at the crown as it will give the hair more movement. If you opt for a fringe, show the exact style to the hairdresser or they may to go scissor mad, fringes can be a bit tricky on a person with a round face.
If your face shape is square, where the hairline and jaw possess a sharp angular structure, then you can get away with aneven short trendy spiky cut or opt for a style that is heavy on texture, so think curls or wisps around the face. A word of advice is not to go for a single length bob, as it make square faces appear too severe.
If your face shape is a heart-shape, where the face is wide across the temples and narrowest at the jaw with a pointed chin, it might be better to go short by keeping the layers soft and relatively long. For long hair add a few layers or waves strategically near the cheeks. Also, you can always copy Victoria Beckham or Katie Homles with a fringe heavy bob.
